Smashing Pumpkins Debut 'Rite of Spring' in Chicago
Solo performance on 'Oceania' fan cruise

Billy Corgan debuted a previously unheard Smashing Pumpkins song called "The Rite of Spring" on Tuesday night at the band's Oceania listening party on a boat on Lake Michigan. The song actually dates back a few years, and Corgan told the audience of fans and friends that he had to check the Internet to see if he had actually played it before. "I couldn't actually find any evidence that I'd actually played this song," he said. "Mr. Internet Man, it was written around the same time as 'Owata,' if you were curious. Back when I didn't write any good songs, according to the Internet."
